I was very excited! I had bought a nice blue pair of butterfly wings and I had my bike fixed since Monday. We were going to celebrate the spring in a different way. The bad news is that I didn’t use my wings, I thought nobody was going to use a costume. But what was the surprise when I arrived yesterday at the meeting point… Many butterflies, some eggs (really!), a sunflower and many other wonderful characters. There was also a bike dressed like a zebra! I went with my boyfriend so I said we were dressed like a “couple in love”, and we really are. The tour started. More than four hundred bikes and unlimited smiles participated. We were like a human train, stopping cars and people who were trying to cross the street. It was very funny!
I thought about starting my day before the sun’s light, but feeling the soft and warm sheets, the silence around me, and the darkness in the room, I decided stay in bed. What a great decision! Isn’t it?
Yesterday I felt like being part of the ground and dust would be the best thing that could happen to me. Now, I’m very enthusiastic and thinking that 24 hours by day are not enough for me.
It is better to be happy!
Scientists say that these days a lot of material from the Sun will reach Earth. Check this out:
This is one of my favorite pages where I can find up to date information about The Sun.
Have you ever hear about de CMEs? CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) are big explosions of plasma and energy from the Sun (in simple terms). This year and the next too, the Sun will be in a very intense activity and Earth will suffer it.
But don’t worry! We are not going to die and neither is the world going to end this December. Solar activity is as common as photosynthesis, just on a larger scale.
In the linked page you can learn more about this.
Is so difficult start writing on my thesis. I just have to do some corrections to one of the chapters and I can’t do it! I find easier writing here. I need to concentrate.
Do you know how big is the Sun? How small is a proton?
Have you ever imagine the difference between this objects? Have you ever compared these objects with the size of the Universe?
I’ve done it, but watching this video.. I don’t know what to say.. look:
